A MOTORBIKE rider was thankful for their helmet after a shocking incident involving a car and a lamp post.
Police in Delhi, India released footage on Twitter of the rider falling off after swerving to miss a car.
It's not clear if the rider actually hits the car that pulls out, but he swerves and the motorbike goes down regardless.
As the motorbike slides along the floor, it smashes into a lamp post on the central reservation.

He's very lucky he had his helmet on as he went face-first into the road, but what happens next is shocking.

The lamp post that was hit is damaged and slowly begins to fall over towards the driver.
The rider is just picking himself up and turning around as the lamp post hits him directly on the head.
The force throws him back down onto the ground and luckily the rest of the lamp post falls to the side.
A caption at the end of the video reads: 'Wearing helmet can save you once, twice, thrice and multiple times.'
